Egypt and Türkiye reject Israeli attack on Gaza, call for talks

Cairo, Oct 14 (Prensa Latina) Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and his Türkiye counterpart Hakan Fidan on Saturday strongly slammed the Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip and civilians, while defending the Palestinian cause.

In a press conference after a closed-door meeting, Shoukry stressed that the aggression against the coastal enclave was the main issue discussed between both diplomats.

We have a common vision on the significance of working to overcome the humanitarian effects in Gaza and the importance of containing this conflict and respecting that civilians are not exposed to danger, Shoukry stated.

The Director of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, Philippe Lazzarini, said there is no water, food, medicine or shelter in that territory.

In turn, Fidan warned that ‘without peace there will be no peace in the region’.

We strongly reject attacks on civilians and call for a permanent and just solution to the Palestinian issue, Fidan added, while thanking Egypt for hosting an international aid center at the airport in the city of El-Arish, in the northeastern Sinai Peninsula, a few dozen kilometers from the Strip.
